2019 MOAB with a 2.5” lift. Just put these 20x10 Fuel Mavricks with 305/55/20 Ridge Grapplers on it. I can’t get used to the look. Probably going back to 17’s. Still debating
The general rule has been that wheel size should never be bigger than half or less the tire size. In addition to making the tire appear larger, the smaller wheel also provides more sidewall protection; something you really probably want on the trails and rocks. Thus, 32” or 33” tires should run on 16” wheels, 34” or 35” tires should run on 17” wheels, 37” tires should never run bigger than 18” wheels, and so on. Unfortunately, the dearth of 16” wheels and compatible tires, and sometimes issues with brake components, necessitates that many of us who run 33” tires have to step up to 17” wheels. Personally, I like to see more rubber and less wheel.

You can’t go wrong with the stock moab wheels, a 2.5-3.5” lift, and some 37 tires. You already have the moab wheels and lift..just add some tires and it’ll look real good

Do tell more
Once I get it all wired up and going I'll share more pictures.

I purchased the heating pads from amazon ($68), there are a bunch to choose from so I picked out the one with buttons that would look close to factory and I think i made the right choice. Currently I'm just wiring everything up. I will be taking the seats out and taking them to a upholstery shop to have the heaters installed inside the seats. The shop that installs Katskinz leather and great reputation quoted me $200 if I bring the seats to them. All in under $300 for heated rear seats is not bad in my book!

I ended up getting the power from the rear window switch, there is a large gauge pink power wire and dark gray ground I tapped in to. I tucked the heated seat harness and module in the opening under the center console and ran the heating pad wire harness under the carpet to the back of the seats where I will be able to plug the heating elements in.

The buttons look great. I'm interested to hear how it all turns out. I've been wanting to do this for awhile.

I’m dropping the seats off at the upholstery shop next week. Excited to get this done!
